e-Khaya Fireproof Shack Replacement Initiative
Establishing the initially modest ‘e-khaya Research and Training Centre’ by the end of 2013, with entrepreneurs from the centre being trained by the centre starting in the early part of 2014. They will build their own small business enterprises during 2014 and subsequently based themselves in the community and identify suitable client homeowners who they will instruct in building their own e-khayas. We will liaise with banks and other institutions here and abroad to ensure that unsecured low cost micro-loans are available. Corporates will be encouraged to direct their CSI budgets towards the initiative. We aim to complete a minimum of 50 e-khaya shack replacements as part of our initial establishment phase, by the end of 2013.
